Something about the sunsets by the ocean is truly magical…

You Raise Me Up

Posted in Uncategorized by Emily on April 5, 2009

I have always loved telling stories. As a wedding photographer, I am the documenter of a very particular, very beautiful story: the one of love. Cliche as that might sound, capturing the passion of love is one that, in a way, completes my soul. To look at a man’s face, or to look at a woman’s face, and see that quiet sort of adoration and desperation is quite possibly one of the most amazing experiences in the world. Working with Jillian and Adam was one of those experiences. I hope that sharing these photographs with you inspires you the way the two of them have inspired me.

Autumn in Spring

Posted in Uncategorized by Emily on March 28, 2009

Autumn was sweet enough to go pose a bit for me today. We had a lot of fun, until I got a flat tire on Vine Street and we were forced to replace it in the middle of traffic!

My brother and I are three years apart in age, but four years apart in school. This means that we’re both soon-to-be graduates. This is the first set of senior pictures I’ve ever shot, and I’m pretty pleased with the result!

It was Adam’s idea to go down by the tracks… and I have to say, it was pretty  fun to practice there.

Feature Hunt

Posted in Uncategorized by Emily on September 23, 2008

This was the result of my first real feature hunt since I left Owensboro.

you’re invited into my house

Today I shot pictures of Fred Hina, the former fire chief of the OFD. I’ve been feeling like my photos have been looking too point-and-shoot, so I was really trying to get something different.

shootin’ pool

Posted in Uncategorized by Emily on June 20, 2008

It was raining when I got to work today, so when I was sent out on a feature hunt, I was less than thrilled. Rain means everyone in Owensboro goes inside and shuts the door, and it often feels impossible to find something good. After about a half an hour of driving around in the rain with no luck, I decided to cash in my idea of shooting senior citizens playing pool at the senior center. While this may not have produced the most visually interesting pictures, the stories you hear while you’re with these guys more than make up for the lack of cool, flashing lights and bar background.
